Life on the Deckle Edge

Writing workshop with Lola Schaefer - Free!

My friend and prolific, award-winning children's author Lola M. Schaefer has just the thing to jumpstart everyone's writing for 2011:

New Ideas For A New Year: A workshop for writers of children's literature is a FREE two-hour workshop next Saturday in Atlanta. Sponsored by SCBWI Southern Breeze and the Friends of the Northeast Spruill Oaks Library, the workshop will take place at the library Jan. 15th, 10 a.m. to 12 noon. There is no cost, but seating is limited and you MUST register by Friday, Jan. 14. Contact Stephanie Moody, Southern Breeze Local Liaison: Moodyviews@Bellsouth.net. You can also register by calling the library (770-360-8820) or visiting the Adult Reference Services desk at the library, 9560 Spruill Road, Johns Creek GA 30022.

Lola will "explain how to mine picture book ideas and make them pop on the page." She'll discuss how to develop supportive ideas for easy readers and explore what kinds of ideas will sustain middle grade and young adult novels.

A lot of expert advice will be packed into the morning, so arrive early enough to grab some coffee and get settled with your notebook and pen ready to go! In addition to learning new tips for developing craft, SCBWI "schmoozes" are a great way to meet other writers and network. See you there!
